I work in a room full of software engineers - far stranger than anything you can imagine. I seriously want to become a Software Engineer Anthropologist to study the bizarre culture (idioms, costumes, music/literature) - even a food culture which revolves around SPAM Thursdays. Yes, there is a ritual of eating cooked slices of SPAM every Thursday. It is almost a sacrament here. (I get migraines, so I don’t partake.)
When I first showed my coworkers the Glowforge promo video, they made me promise to use it to engrave our corporate logo onto SPAM slices for SPAM Thursday! When that day arrives, I will post pix to the forum here.
I know it has been said repeatedly before, but the Glowforge Staff strongly suggest you should NEVER use a glowforge on edibles after it has been used with non-edibles. Getting wood or plastic particles in your food can be hazardous, andnon-tasty!
Well wood isn’t a problem (real wood, like maple, not plywood, and yes there are some toxic woods, but if you are using those you probably know that) as opposed to plastic. Wood particles get in your food in BBQ frequently, also likely from wood cutting boards, etc. Heck you can grill your salmon on cedar planks for goodness sake. And as we all learned this summer Parmesan cheese has wood fiber derived cellulose in it for clumping prevention.
What if I make a “pan” cake and then cut out the circles?? hmmmm Perfectly round pancakes ( or funky shaped ones?) . I’m surprised they made the utensils but didn’t embellish them ( at least a GF symbol on the handle?) Hope everyone had a very Happy Valentines Day !!!
LOL! There’s actually more to the story. In order to cut down on the terrible smell of cooking spam in office kitchen, our SPAM man often takes the toaster oven into the men’s room and cooks it there. Really. As an added benefit.
